NEW YORK, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy Recordings' Classic Christmas Album series rings in this year's holiday season with new collections by Alabama, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond, George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Martina McBride, Barbra Streisand, and Andy Williams.  The eight new titles will be available everywhere October 8, 2013 through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.

Each new collection gathers a dozen or more remastered tracks that span the career of each artist, all of whom recorded multiple holiday albums through the years (some on multiple record labels), as well as occasional Christmas tunes on other albums such as soundtracks or benefit albums. 

The Classic Christmas Album by Neil Diamond, for example, draws its selections from his three holiday bestsellers: The Christmas Album (1992), The Christmas Album 2 (1994), and A Cherry Cherry Christmas (2009).  The Classic Christmas Album by Alabama presents tracks from Alabama Christmas (1985), Christmas With The Judds And Alabama (1994), and Alabama Christmas Vol. II (1996).  The Classic Christmas Album by Gladys Knight & the Pips gathers songs from Bless This House (1975, Buddah) and That Special Time Of Year (1980, Columbia).

With many of their holiday albums either out-of-print, or never issued on CD, or highly collectible rarities, each new title in the Classic Christmas Album series is a welcome cross-section of those hard-to-find classics.  Each Classic Christmas Album gathers a career's worth of precious memories, often spanning decades, while creating new memories at the same time.

The eight new Classic Christmas Album entries comprise the following:
